Three Branches of Government


We are doing a research project on the three branches of Federal Government (United States) and State Government (Indiana).

You will be completing three tasks for this assignment:

  1. Complete the worksheet on U.S. Federal Government and Indiana State Government.
  2. Type your facts.
  3. Design a fold out guide with facts about each branch.  It will look something like this:

Here are some resources to help you find the information you need for the worksheet:

  • There is a “Your Indiana State Government” packet in our classroom that you can use.  It has a lot of facts about Indiana government.
  • Ben’s Guide to U.S. Government is a great website for information on the Federal Government.
  • Finding your Senators and Representatives will depend on where you live.   This link will help you find your senators and representatives: FIND YOUR SENATOR AND REPRESENTATIVE.  You will need to know your home address and zip code. If you don’t know your zip code, you can find it here by typing in your address, city, and state.:  FIND YOUR ZIP CODE

These links will help you find information about the Federal Government:
